Delicate Cutters

Album: Throwing Muses (1986)
  • It's just the lack
    Of time I keep
    Reaching out, lashing out 

    It's just the lines
    Run down the walls
    I can't believe they never fall
    The walls never leave
    And the walls begin to scream 

    And my toes against the wall
    I stare ahead
    The door inside the wall
    Your face inside the door
    You crawl across the room 

    The picture never moves
    My books are very still
    You slide to my feet
    You slide across the floor 

    Throw your head across the ice
    Throw my head through a window
    Like poetry 

    It's four o'clock, I'm waiting
    Your face appears
    I keep forgetting your name
    While I'm writing this, you
    You crash through the wall
    You fall off the floor 

    Slide your head across the ice
    Throw my hands through the window
    Like gods

    A room
    Full of delicate cutters
    All sitting down, the room has many doors
    All but one of them are closed
    She goes around
    Opening the doors 

    This has another ending
    Full of innocent children
    One of them are closed 

    She goes around
    This has another ending
    (Remember the room)
    Full of delicate cutters
    Opening the doors Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
